Pre-analytical phase

The blood test is performed by the Vet during the clinical exam.
EtapeV1

Dry tube
Allow the blood clotting (30-60 min ambient T°)
Centrifuge the tube within the hour at 2,500g during 10 to 15 minutes
Transfer the serum/plasma in another tube for dosing
 
Maximum conservation: 72h at 4°C. Beyond, provide a freezing
Hemolysed or lactescent blood samples not authorized
 
In case samples are sent to an external laboratory
  • Conditions of tubes transport must maintain freezing
  • Frozen blood samples must not be refrozen
  • After defrosting, plasma/serum must be centrifuged 10 minutes at 1500g

 

 

Analytical phase

Dosages of the various parameters must be compliant with recommendations of each supplier. FibroDog Screening has been constructed and validated by using methods developed below (table 1). The laboratory responsible for measuring parameters of the FibroDog Screening product must ensure the best correlation between methods used and the ones listed below. The reference units of each marker are detailed (table 2).
